Oi in Brazil has the lowest monthly cost for the OECD 300 calls + 1GB basket, at USD PPP 10.14, with the Prepaid Hi Free 3GB plan. Movistar, Argentina and Movistar, Mexico are the second and third cheapest, with the Comunidad 2GB plan (USD PPP 15.31) and Paquete Prepago Rollover $150 plan (USD PPP 16.99) respectively.

At the other end of the price range, Nicaragua is the most expensive country, with the  Favorites $12 plan from Movistar Nicaragua being the cheapest offer there, at just under USD PPP 88 per month, 8.7 times the cost of the Oi Brazil offer.

 Note: Due to spiralling inflation, the results for Venezuela have been excluded, as they distort the averages, and are not meaningful within the comparison.

The Emerging Markets – Latin America system covers 55 operators across the following 19 countries in Latin America.
